Bug Description

Probably related or identical to [Ubuntu “gvfs” package Bugs; Bug #1077696]
"mounted samba share stops working for file access"

Starting with Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” I found that read() operations will eventually hang. Once this occurs
the hunk up process cannot be killed. Others have noted that hangs occur when playing movies. In my
particular case I was doing md5sums across files in a samba shared (mounted with nemo/fuse) when
I detected the issue. Other also claim that this only occurs with fuse mounted shares, I have not verified
this. GDB isn't very useful in this situaton because once the process hangs, you can't get back to
the GDB prompt with sig-INT. I determined that the hang occured the a call to read() by using a liberal
number of printf() calls. I have Mint 13 and Mint 12 systems on the same network that do not exhibit the
problem. I suspect that recent changes to fuse have caused it to become unstable.

I am having the exact same problem. Three Mint 14 computers and a Windows box. After a while media playback or even file transfer hangs after a little while.
